Chinese tech brand Oppo is experimenting with a flip smartphone design that includes a touchscreen for modern consumers to enjoy. The structure of the cellphone reverts back to nostalgic designs that are made modern with updates to the screen, shape and overall make.

Flip phones made their way out of many cellphone branding concepts when touch screens were introduced, but now that flexible and foldable screens are entering the market the design of a touch screen flip phone hybrid is much more feasible. The version by Oppo is currently a prototype that features the aesthetic of a tablet with a foldable screen that bends in the centre. The design offers a more compact smartphone compared to other models.
